Hong Hao is a Chinese photographer who, for the past 14 years, is documenting almost everything he has consumed or possessed in his life. He explains: “Day by day, I put my daily consumed objects into a scanner piece by piece, like keeping a visual diary. After scanning the original objects, I’ll save them in digital forms and categorise these digital files into different folders in my PC, in order to make a collage of them later on. This task, like yogi’s daily practice, has become a habit in my day-to-day life as well as a tool to observe the human condition in contemporary consumer society.” 

The collages are usually combined by certain themes, for example: small things, books, supermarket items, electrical appliances,  paper notes or just by color…  and the resulting large-format compositions are an impressive detailed account of one man’s everyday life.
